    • What is RFID? RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that allows automatic identification of objects, animals or people. RFID is not just a better bar code Capabilities More data, greater accuracy, automated delivery Line of sight not required Reads 1000’s of items simultaneously Benefits Improved accuracy, visibility, operational efficiency and security Opportunities to quantify processes and map improvements Opportunities for exception based management
    • RFID Components Tag : It is a transponder that is made up of an integrated antenna and an electronic circuit. The information can be written and rewritten on a tag. The ID written on the tag is known as the EPC (Electronic Product Code). Reader : An RFID reader is a device that is used to interrogate an RFID tag. The reader has an antenna that emits radio waves; the tag responds by sending back its data Host Computer : It reads/writes data from/to the tags through the reader. It stores and evaluates obtained data and links the transceiver to applications. Tag RFID Reader Host Computer
    • How RFID works? Radio command signal issued from reader Host Computer Modified signal containing data returned Reader 164B28F34 Antenna
    • Benefits of the Solution  Information about Container location are available Immediately & Accurately.  Fully Automated Container Yard Management Solution & error free container identification & transfer.  Client and server architecture to facilitate centralized database  Can work under rugged environment and rough handling.  Digital data capture by system.  Tags Memory Capacity Up to 512 bit (Long range UHF).  Real time reports  Increase staff utilization & Improves operational efficiency
    • System’s Requirement: - To provide daily in-out report of containers and Carriers location wise along with stay duration. - To have a visual / sound signal which informs the guards whether the number of entry assigned to a particular vehicle / container is over. - To have highly secured, tamper evident tags which cannot be copied. - To support recording all weighing measurements online without need of manual intervention in secure way. - To have system which will be cheat proof and assures the compliance to company policies. - To generate automated Container entry / exit receipts on paper without human intervention, for record purpose. - To support ERP in data collection, validation and for MIS purpose. - To have minimum hurdles in adaptation of the technology without creating any additional points of activities or unnecessary actions dependency from any one new to process.
    • Cont.  Plant Currently 1 Yard under consideration namely Chennai.  RFID stickers issuance • RFID Stickers to be issued to all Carriers and Containers. • Tags will be pasted on every vehicle’s windscreen contains the information Vehicle like Reg. number, Insurance No. etc.  Yard Activity recording and control • Verification of vehicle vs. Container on the basis of RFID Tag. • Automated validation & Yard entry process as per schedule of entry. • Data recording at various Weighting Bridge stations and recording of the same in RFID Tags associated with the vehicle in accordance to the procedure. • Data storage at the database level and parallel marking on RFID Tag to keep it in independent mode or IT Setup for non interrupted functioning of system.

    • View of Automated Gate entry
    • Truck Reach's to Yards Gate which is designated reporting point.. RFID tags for carrier issued using Hand Held with Camera inbuilt and relative Information written on UHF Tag… Truck Reach at Yard gate and card shown to Reader
    • RFID Procedure  Tag Issuance Supervisor at Sea Port will issue / re-assignee an tag of carrier against the Container tags on Loading activity using HHT. Tag Number will be stored in the same truck entry.  RFID Readers at Yard Entry To Read the Truck Presence with respective details and print receipt for container entry  Weighbridge Ensuring error -free weighing operations Weight of the truck will be stored in database against RFID tag of carrier. Cross Checks At Weighbridge level all trucks has to cross the predefined crossing of weighting and recording, where data has to be stored in the Database and UHF tag will also contain the information related to the crossing of predefined process.
    • RFID In Container Loading and Entry 2. 1. Container identified in yard at seaport and Photo of Container No., Carrier No.taken. Sea Port Container Yard RFID HHT reader at dock issue RFID tag for Container and respective Carrier door records container departure. Container Management System (CMS). Updated on container's movements, location and contents. 3. RFID tagged container carrier approached to the Warehouse Gate. WMS ensures correct container and carrier combination entering the premises using tag info & app. Info.
    • Issue of Container Tag Tag ID will be read by HHT or Fixed Readers Attached to the Crain which are connected to Central Application server thru Wi-Fi or GPRS connectivity and the data would fed in the system online at real time. Alternate of Fixed RFID reader will be RFID Hand Held Reader which has to be operated by Crain Operator or Ground Staff.
    • Tagging of Container: 1. Each container will be tagged with a smart Container Tag that contains a unique ID. The container description will be entered into a database along with its tracking number. 2. The tag can be assigned certain parameters like Owner, Consigner, Consignee, Destination location , permitted movement etc. 3. Over the time the database can build up an audit trail of the handling and workflow history of each container.
    • Container Entry in to Yard: 1. Entry gate will be assigned with RFID Reader where reader will be connected to GPRS unit / WiFi unit and communicate with Central Application on GPRS connectivity or Wi-Fi connectivity. 2. At the time of container and Carrier entry RFID gate reader / HHT will read the Container Tag ID and after initial validation data will be passed on to the central Application. 3. Application logic checks and print an entry pass for all vehicle and containers.
    • Additional Procedures at Yard Entry  CCTV Integration Weighing moment’s CCTV footage integration with Database.  Traffic Management Centralized Traffic Control Room for containers & trucks. In case of any path deviation, an Error message will be displayed in control room.
    • RFID In Container Shipping Process Warehouse 2. RFID reader at warehouse dock RFID reader at warehouse dock 4. door records container arrival. door records container departure. RFID tagged container aggregated 3.and loaded into container. WMS ensures correct pallet gets loaded onto the container using tag info. from container and pallet. RFID tag on container read by 1. RFID tag on container read by 5. RFID reader at container yard entrance at seaport. Container Yard RFID reader at exit from the container depot. Container Management System (CMS). Updated on container's movements, location and contents. Container Depot Sea Port
    • Requirements at Exit point After movement from all 4 activity points, starting from 1 to 4 and data recording. Tag deactivation / Removal / Receipt issuance. In case of excess stay, action suggestion in accordance to the company policy. Action confirmation and EXIT
    • UHF RFID Reader and Antenna is put on the gate. The software is deployed on a PC & HHT. RFID tags are provided to the approved Vehicles & applied on windscreen of the carriers. RFID Cards ensures the identification of the trucks at each entry / exit points and compliance of trip in accordance to policies. At the time of successful trip closer, vehicle exit recorded within the system and RFID tags from container removed at exit point.
